Aircraft History

The Falcon 10 and Falcon 100 series are the babies of Dassault's corporate jet lineup, conceived in the late 1960s.
 
The two jets are basically the same aircraft. The only differences are the introduction of the first electronic flight instrument system instrument panels to corporate aviation in 1983, a fourth cabin window on the right side of the cabin, and a new paint scheme. The Falcon 10/100 is the fastest of the small business jets. It was the first business jet designed completely by computer using CATIA.
 
The Falcon 10/100 completed its first flight on October 15, 1971.
